Sweet and Sour Meatballs
Description: Meatballs are a perennial favourite for appetizers or snacks. Since there is lots of sauce, these can also be served for dinner with steamed or stir-fried rice and a green vegetable or salad.

Ingredients Preparation
1 lb[500 g]lean ground beef, chicken or turkey
1/3 cup[75 mL]breadcrumbs
1/4 cup[50 mL]Carnation® Regular or 2% Evaporated Milk 
1 egg
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 tsp[4 mL]salt
1/4 tsp[1 mL]pepper

1 1/2 cups[375 mL]ketchup
1/4 cup[50 mL]orange or pineapple juice

In a large bowl, combine ground meat, breadcrumbs, evaporated milk, egg, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well. With dampened hands, shape into about 30 meatballs. Arrange in a single layer in a greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish.

In a bowl, whisk together ketchup, orange juice, sugar, soy sauce, ginger, lemon zest and chili flakes. Whisk in evaporated milk. Pour sauce over meatballs.

Bake in a preheated 350ºF (180ºC) oven for 40 to 45 minutes, shaking pan occasionally, to turn and coat meatballs. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

• Meatballs can be made ahead, covered and refrigerated one day ahead or packaged and frozen for up to four weeks.
